    Compression sacks

    I've never used a surplus bivy sack soI don't know. there's hundreds of different kinds and sizes as opposed to the surplus "one size fits all method". take it into an REI type store and they'll help you find the right fit. simple as that.

    Compression sacks

    spend a couple extra bucks and get a hiking brand sack. lighter and more weatherproof. The army compression sacks suck. The buckles break constantly and they're almost a pound by themselves. dont carry extra weight if you dont have to.

    Finding a place to sleep...

    I have reserve money too. Not everyone spends every dollar they make on beer. Anyway, I find that small towns are usually better to find places to sleep. More woods, less cops... I prefer sleeping in my tent so I'll take a patch of woods any day.

    Taylor made joint from nothing

    You're not supposed to smoke honey. I was at a pipe shop and asked the guy about putting honey in the pipe (because the pipe was indian crafted and kinda rough or something like that i dont even remember). he said not to because it crystalizes in your throat or some shit and does something bad...

    Yeah I completely agree with that. I think you misunderstood. My point is that while it's extremely common for travelers to say that others should do what they're doing in order to avoid working, etc; when questions on how to do so, they refuse to give answers. that's what i think is stupid and...

    I never said the arrogance itself killed the train forum. I simply said it was all too common. I agree that there were a lot of people asking stupid questions and not taking responsibility. But like I said, douchebag know-it-alls posting snide replies to questions from newbies is all too common...

    ^Don't get me wrong, your post was helpful. And even if it wasn't, at least you were contributing. Diagaro, however, wasn't. And it's shit like that that was all too common on the train forum. As far as experience, thank you for sharing yours. But like I said, Diagaro didn't even mention if he...

    Well I know you weren't trying to be helpful but I did learn something from this. There are sailors(if you even are a sailor) that resemble the majority of trainhoppers. You know a little bit of uncommon knowledge and think you're just so cool. You're unwilling to help anyone else because in...

    thank you that was very helpful. i dont know why i cant find shit like that through google.

    haha. yeah i definitely don't want to just jump into it because i know there's a lot to sailing. wind, water direction, sails and cables to mess with, anchors, rutters, sand bars, storms, not knowing where the fuck you are, etc. it's not like driving a car where theres two pedals, a wheel and...

    Tent City

    sounds sweet. I stayed at a tent city in Gainesville Fl for a few days and it was pretty cool. The people there were really nice we got a 30 degree mummy bag for free and sometimes churches would come and feed but mostly they were on their own. but people came and went so much that there was...

    90s Emo????

    I like Sunny Day Real Estate. Never listened to any of the others though. Most 2000 and later emo is garbage but I gotta say, Hawthorne Heights is really good for an emo band. Everything after that sucked though cause everyone just tried to copy the hell out of them.

    who gave it to you? the people there or some church?

    So my girlfriend and I really wanted to build a cabin this winter but it seems like with the price of land it would be a better idea to get a sailboat. I've heard of travelers getting sailboats and sailing the coasts because it's very cheap living. Has anyone done this, know anyone that's done...

    Crust Punk

    Well I think that generally crust punks are hipsters. just broke ass hipsters. maybe it's just the people i know but they all look the same. skinny jeans, crust punk shirt. hipster looking hat with NAUSEA or some crap written on it. bullet belt or stud belt with vans or converse. maybe a couple...

    Crust Punk

    So I'm trying to get to the bottom of this phenomenon. Why does it exist? What purpose does it serve? Where did it come from and why is it so bad? Haha, basically folks, I'm wondering if people really sit down and listen to crust punk like they would with music. I say that because I don't...

    New Orleans

    So I've heard a lot of bad stuff about cops in New Orleans. Basically that they can do whatever they want because they don't have to answer to anyone. For example, you can get arrested for "molesting a cheeseburger" by taking the pickles off a cheeseburger. But on the other hand it seems to be a...

    road dogs and noob questions

    haha. when i saw that dogs face i thought it was my dog! my dog looks exactly the same in the face but has a body that matches. black with tan paws and underbelly. like a min pin.

    "Yuppie Packs"

    ^i'd say in general there are a lot more pros than cons. more durable, easier to strap shit to, stands on it's own, doesn't collapse when it's empty, holds loads better,, etc.

    road dogs and noob questions

    well here's the summary, my opinion, and some additional info: -road dog=someone you travel with -don't get a dog yet. not only do you need to figure out how to travel first but you really need to think about if you want one. it will hold you back(ex. going into stores). it does have a lot of...

    my dog has worms... question about blackwalnut wormwood tincture...

    not sure but i heard black walnut tastes like ash. i doubt you could get him to eat it. try making a tea and soaking his food in it. maybe add some sugar? i know thats counterproductive but that's the only way it would be palatable to a human. not sure about the wormwood. hope this helped a little.
